Philadelphia Employment Lawyers Discuss Unemployment Compensation

March 21st, 2017
Philadelphia Employment Lawyers Discuss Unemployment Compensation

Losing a job is a stressful experience for anyone. It can change your life dramatically, especially in regards to your finances. If you have recently been let go, the first thing you should consider is unemployment compensation. It may seem simple, but it can be far more complicated than most people realize.

Unemployment compensation varies from state to state, and you will have to find your way through a labyrinth of rules and regulations specific to your state before you get that first check. It is important to understand the requirements for qualifying, how to apply, how much you are entitled to on a weekly basis, and how long your compensation will last.

Was yours a “no-fault” separation? To be eligible for unemployment compensation, many states require that you lost your job through no fault of your own. Reasons may include a reduction in force (RIF), the end of a contract, a layoff for lack of work, and other reasons that do not involve misconduct. It may also be possible to collect unemployment if you quit your job for “good cause,” which an attorney can help to clarify.

If you are eligible, you will also need to know what rules you must follow to remain eligible, including requirements for seeking work, being able and available for work, and what to do if you have an opportunity to earn money while you are collecting unemployment. If you are turned down for unemployment compensation, Philadelphia employment lawyers can also help you with an appeal.
